In this webinar, learn the steps for creating a successful technology plan for your library.
This event has passed.
Technology changes at a dizzying pace – so how do we plan for and implement these changes in libraries? A robust technology plan can help you create an environment that truly meets the needs of the community your library serves. The prospect of technology planning can seem overwhelming and time-consuming, especially in an already short-staffed library. This webinar will help libraries create a framework for their technology planning and introduce the tools and decisions that need to be incorporated into a working plan. Join us to learn how to successfully develop and implement a practical technology plan that can help move your library and community forward.
Presented by: Diana Silveira, librarian, president of Novare Library Services, and author of Library Technology Planning for Today and Tomorrow
